1956/1966 BMW R-Series Hybrid Cafe Racer

This is an interesting and beautiful bike: the chassis is from 1956 and the engine is from 1966. The 1966 R69S motor was taken out of another bike owned by the builder (according to the eBay listing), and the current state of the bike has stayed the same since it was originally put together. The current seller has done nothing to it, so I don’t know if they got a smoking deal or what, but this thing isn’t going cheap. Current price is over $7K, and Buy-It-Now is over $10K, with about 14 hours left.

Seller claims it runs, but I mostly just posted this bike because of the looks. Definitely not your standard everyday cafe racer…
